I am Here Today With

Pray with me: “My Beloved Poppa, I am here today with open hands and an open heart, ready to depend on You to help me through this day and all it will bring my way.

Help me be like Nehemiah, help me come to You for guidance, strength, provision and protection.

As I face tough choices and hard situations, help me remember to come unto You my Beloved for guidance and strength to do the right this, help me remember that I am Your child and Your representative to the world around me.

Help me live today in a way that brings honor to Your holy name.

In Jesus’ name I humbly request this, Amen.”

May Jehovahs rays of Divine love shine brightly upon you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Protect Us From What?

 ‘May the Lord bless you and protect you.  May the Lord smile on you  and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’ Numbers 6:22-27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

What is the greatest blessing?

It is to be in a loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. In order for them to spend time with you, you have to spend time with them.         

May you  be blessed with spending quality time with our most Beloved today.

Protect us from what?                                                                                                                                                                        

There is satan of course, there are fleshly adversaries but the worst adversary is our own selves. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                                                         

In order for Jehovah to protect us we must be completely obedient unto Him.    May you be blessed with an obedient heart today.

How may the Lord smile upon us?                                                                                           

By being happy with us.                                                                                           

How is He happy with us?                                                                                             

When we appreciate and reciprocate His love. May you be blessed with an amazing loving experience with our most cherished Love.

How can Jehovah be gracious to us?                                                                       

 By blessing us with His gifts for which we do not deserve like forgiveness. But, we must be willing to share these gifts.                                                                         

May the Lord bless you to be as gracious towards others as He is towards you.

How may the Lord show us favor?                                                                               

By doing nice things for us.                                                                                             

But, again as He does nice things for us, we too are to do nice things for others.  May you be blessed with many opportunities to do good to others this day.

How may the Lord bless us with peace?                                                                       

By being there to comfort, strengthen and encourage us through our difficult times. May you be blessed today to be a blessing to others in their time of need as Jesus is to you.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19) for blessing me the necessary provisions to love others as You love me.       Thank you for You most special love my adorable One and please guide me where that love is needed to be shared with others this day. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always provided for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

‘May the Lord bless you and protect you.  May the Lord smile on you  and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’ Numbers 6:22-27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

A Pretty Brave Request.

 Search me, O God, and know my heart;  test me and know my anxious thoughts.
Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalm 139:23-24 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I do not know about you but I have no desire for Jehovah to test me. That is a pretty brave request. I have gone through testing and it ain’t fun.

As well, no matter how strong of a Christian you think you are, you are still weak.

Come to think about it, that is a great reason to ask to be tested, to find out any area’s of weakness that needs work on and to not become overconfident.

Jehovah already knows our anxious thoughts and knows how to relieve them, usually for me it is by opening my understanding of Bible verses that encourage and strengthen me.

Sometimes we become complacent in our lives and unknowingly are doing things that are offensive unto Jesus.

We need the Holy Spirit to convict us of these ( do not worry, He is a good, kind and gentle teacher. There is no yelling or screaming. However, when we are obstinate, He will use strong manner to convince us to turn from these destructive habits).

Unlike the world, which is travelling down the Highway to Hell, Christ has an individual road for us to travel the we alone are to travel to our Heavenly Home. That is why we need the guidance of the best path finder, The Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) bless me with the Holy Spirit to always provide help to me to remain on the Back Road to Heaven You have chosen no matter how hot and dusty and bumpy it is. I know the ultimate destination is worth it.             

I honestly request this in the name of He who followed the most difficult road, the one that led to Calvary, for me, Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Prayer for Trust

And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 2 Corinthians 9:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Oh my caring God please bless me with ample patience to deal with an obstinate one in my care.

Please bless me with abundant wisdom to know how to provide the proper care while not allowing for manipulation, conniving nor deceiving to enslave me. To know when it is best to walk away from the tormentor to maintain my sanity.

Please bless me with a sanctuary away from the abusive one so we can commune together in peace.

Please bless me with plentiful strength to endure the constant nit picking and complaining that is just being used to get attention.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Bless Me With

 Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) bless me with providing me with warning when satan is tempting me so that I may prepare to defeat him.

Please prepare me with victory verses to cause him and his goons to sprint away from me in terror of hearing Your victory verses defeat them.

Please Father provide me with numerous opportunities, both big and small, to serve You this day and every day.

Please provide me with wisdom in all of my words and actions this day so that my they may please You and bring glory unto You.

Please my Beloved bless me with provision to spend quiet time with You, my most treasured confidant. Not just to share my problems with You, but just to be blessed to be in Your presence.

Please my Beloved bless me with provision to share You with those who are receptive to hearing Your invitation to join Your Holy loving family.

I humble request these blessings in the name of He whose blood has provided an entrance into Your Holy throne room Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Best Investment.

loving to each other

Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them. Mark 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jesus took time out of His busy day to show love to children, should we not imitate Him every day?

How much quality time do you spend with your children?

At meal time (irregardless of whether it is breakfast or dinner) do you sit around the table and talk, cementing your bonds, or do you all sit there with you mugs pasted in front of the idiot box (TV)?

Do you help them with their homework, class projects or go to parent teacher meeting with them?

Do you tuck them into bed and read them bedtime stories them kiss them good night and tell them you love them (that was my personal favorite)?

On the weekend do you do things with them like go to the park or watch a family movie and then talk about it?

You are the potter, they are the mold, what type of vessel are you creating?

Children learn more by watching then listening. What do they see when they see you?

Children learn more by watching then listening. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same goes for teachers.

At the beginning of each semester I would tell my classes: “I am your teacher. I will work hard for you to be the best teacher for you. You will work hard for me because you love me.” Then I proceeded to prove it. At first they thought I was nuts. After about a month, they were my babies and they knew it. They loved their teacher because they saw their teacher loved them (Kinda like Jesus taught me. We love Him because He loved us first.). I believe what I taught them about love will stay with them all of their lives.

“Children will not remember you for the material things you have provided, but for the feeling that you cherished them.” –Richard L. Evans

Children are Gods gift to you, nurture them properly like you would a garden for you are sowing the seeds of the future. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same goes for those who are new children in the family of Jehovah. You are to love them as if they were your own children and dedicate yourself to their well being and maturity in Christ as you would your own children.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with all the marvelous teachers You have sent my way. Thank you for guiding me to emulate the greatest Teacher, Jesus. May I inspire all those You bring to me to become loving obedient children of Yours so as to enrich Your treasure in Heaven (to be surrounded by even more loving children of Yours). I meekly ask of this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Know This is Not True.

christ, will lead 

Day by day the Lord takes care of the innocent, and they will receive an inheritance that lasts forever. Psalm 37:18 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Having walked with my Beloved for over forty years I know this is not true. There have been times when my Love did not supply my needs.

But, that was not His fault, it was mine.

He asked me to go here and I stubbornly refused to and went there. So, of course I did not receive the blessing.

“Men do not reject the Jehovah because He contradicts Himself but because He contradicts them.” Paul Harvey

Think of it like this: a rich man informs a homeless man that he will buy him all the groceries he wants if he meets him at a certain grocery store at a certain time. The homeless man goes to a fast food restaurant instead. A few days later they meet again and the homeless man demands to know where the rich man was. The rich man informs the homeless man he was waiting for him at the grocery store.

If you desire Jehovah to meet your daily needs, you must agree to His commands. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now of course we know that the inheritance is our eternal home in Heaven.

Prayer: Thank you oh gracious Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14) – The LORD Shall Provide for blessing me with Your providential sustenance every day. Thank you for blessing me with providing me with a wonderful beautiful home in Heaven when I come into Your loving arms. I exalt You in the name of He whose cherished blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Warn Those Who Are

BEING TORN DOWN SPIRITUALLY

 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 1 Thessalonians 5:14 The Holy Bible New International Version

Notice it does not say to support the lazy trouble makers?

I see so many good hearted but wrong minded support the lazy drunks and drug addicts and welfare bums that foolishly believe we owe them a free ride.

That is wrong.

You are not helping them but hurting them by encouraging them to continue on in a destructive lifestyle for both themselves and for society (because many commit crimes to support their habit which hurts innocent folks).

There is an old saying that idle hands are the devils playground. Do you notice that drug addicts are also habitual criminals? Perhaps doing time in a third world prison would do them more good than holding their hand and encouraging this lifestyle because there is no repercussions for their actions.

They are to be warned that their lifestyle is wrong. If they choose to continue on then do so on their own and face harsh consequences for their actions.

Our financial, mental and spiritual efforts are to go to help those who are willing to put forward an effort to help themselves.

To support lazy bums and drunks and drug addicts is a sin because it is a waste of our resources which should go to help those who are prepared to help themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) bless me with providing me with guidance to those who are in need and with the wisdom to differentiate between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. I humbly request this in the name of He who provided only to those who put forward and effort to help themselves Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Are You in The

BE JOYFUL IN YOU

I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done. Psalms 9:1 the Holy Bible, New Living Testament

“How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child.”  William Shakespeare

When I was an experienced tree planter, at the beginning of every season I took time to teach the rookies how to plant. There is a lot more to it than just putting a tree in the ground and takes about three years to learn. As we got paid per tree rooky wages were low compared to vets so it was a great advantage for them what was done for them. Usually only one out of every seven would thank me.

I imagine the odds are even lower for those that are thankful towards Jehovah for His blessing bot great and small.

How about you, are you in the majority or minority?

I am constantly thanking my Beloved very day.

And you know what?

It gives you a very positive outlook in life and a very positive attitude through out the day. If you desire big blessings from Jehovah try being thankful for the small ones. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-jireth (Genesis 22:14) – The LORD Shall Provide, for blessing me with ample provisions both great and small every day. I always desire to be grateful to You my loving Poppa for Your abundant provisions. In the name of He who provided salvation through His blood I thank you. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

All in One Word.

Today our world is plagued by rage and depression. It oozes into every cranny of society, rich and poor, man and woman, of every colour and nationality.

Everyone is asking why.

It can all be summed up in one word: unforgiveness.

When we refuse to forgive someone for an offense they have committed upon us it seeps into every aspect of our life. That is why there is so much road rage, why there is so much drug abuse, why there is so much failed marriage, why there is so much in fighting in families.

Why do folks refuse to forgive?

Because, we are greedy.

Instead of leaving justice in Jehovahs capable hands we demand the right for blood by our own.

Unforgiveness is a form of selfishness. We demand our pound of flesh.Joseph a son of Jehovah

The cure for this selfishness can only be found by laying our grievances at the feet of Jesus and trusting Him to deliver true justice in His time and in His way.

Speaking from personal experience, Christs justice is far more terrible than anything we could administer to the unrepentant.

The Lord works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. Proverbs 16: 4-5 Holy Bible New Living Translation

In the mean time, we are to pray for the offended to come to repentance for their own good.

If possible stay away from abusive folks and if you have to deal with them do so graciously but firmly. Let them know their attitude and behavior is not welcome nor tolerated. Therefore, the relationship shall remain formal, but, if they repent the door of friendship shall be opened

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohe Tishuathi (Psalms 18:46&51:14) – GOD of My selfishnessSalvation bless me to always have a forgiving heart towards others as You do towards me. Please bless me with the wisdom, strength and provision to walk away from habitual  abusers and to pray for them to come unto repentance as well. I humbly request this in the name of He whose blood made forgiveness possible Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
